“Welcoming theatre near town centre”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

I live in Colchester, and now go to the Mercury several times a year. There is a full programme, with a variety of productions, by the resident company, visiting companies, local opera group, etc. I saw Alan Ayckbourn's Absent Friends in March, am going to see Paul Jones and the Manfreds this week, and Arnold Wesker's Roots later this month. Favourite production last year was dramatisation of Captain Corelli's Mandolin by resident company with Romanian puppeteers! Also loved Christmas anthology of readings and performances by the pantomime cast.
